Trip to the British Museum

On the 6th Feb I joined a textile trip to the British museum to see the Grayson Perry exhibition. I thought the exhibition was brilliant and as a maker and (hopefully) a fellow crafts person I understood the thought process behind it perfectly. It has been called a 'defining exhibition of our time' and I do hope that it has done something to bring the craftspeople and the skill behind the art into the spotlight.

On a lighter note we also got see Alan Measles stunt double and the bike that him and Perry rode through Germany on.

The museum itself is a wonderful mix of classical and contemporary architecture and is a wonderful space to be in.

It was a brilliant, thought provoking and inspiring day. The British museum is definitely worth a visit, and its mostly free!
